We are now a little more than half-way through the month of September and the Sports World continues to entertain/surprise. Football season is underway and already there have been some surprises, upsets, and nail-biters in both College and NFL play. That’s what fall is all about really, enjoying the cooler weather with friends and family while watching a man’s game. With that being said today on the East Side we are going to take a look at what, where, and who have been hot so far in September; and who really have not been so hot as the fall months ‘kick-off’.

Saturday the 3rd, the first Saturday of the College Season, saw some pleasant surprises/upsets and some expected landslide victories. As the first games kicked off I fell in love for the 8th time – I really became a fan of the game in 2003 – all over again, and my buckeyes were the first to take the field against the Akron Zips.

Now with the NBA Basketball and NHL Hockey seasons and playoffs drawing to a close, so we have to ride Golf – Majors are fun drama to watch but there is only three more left taking up three weekends in the summer – and Baseball all the way to the College Football seasons. See in the past we would have said to look forward to the NFL preseason in which all fans had an opportunity to see their teams and the league’s superstars for a couple of quarters in an exhibition game.

The slogan centered around the Ohio State Football Team over the years includes all the fans telling each other through, thick or thin, “OH..(and the other responds)..IO”; with the latest controversy coming out of Columbus, Ohio, however, it has quickly become “OH…OHNO!” All jokes aside, the news of Terrelle Pryor’s departure surfaced around 6 p.m. yesterday evening. ESPN News reported that Pryor’s attorney said the Quarterback would not return for his senior year; this after news came out earlier last week when ex-Head Coach Jim Tressel was fired about Pryor receiving improper benefits (cars, etc.). Coincidence? I think not.
